    I have the exact same ATV and love it. I think the EPS is a must for anyone that rides on rocky terrain. Enjoy and post some more pics sometime!

    The eps and non eps is night in day, I do alot of trail riding and dont feel as beat up the end of the day. For the extra 1000 I think its a good idea.

    Dont get me wrong I have nothing bad to say about honda I just like the polaris better. Im not a fan of artic cat if you wanna talk about them:p

    I have a Polaris OP and I like it. Never had problems at all. As far as who is out on top right now...in my personal opinion and experience Can-am is making fine machines. My buddy has one...granite it has all kinds of extras (Gorilla axles and all kinds of armor) let me find some pics of it.

    It's the one on the left (yellow) the Polaris that we have is The second to last one (greenish color). I've got a better picture I think.

    Im not into the mud bogging but ive tryed it and with the swamp lite tires I have on the polaris its nothing.

    Ill agree with you on the Can-am they do make a hell of a bike but your talking 14,000-15,000 for a good one. I got a top of a line polaris for 8,500.
